Congress remains one of the least trusted institutions in the United States - some surveys even rank its members behind used car salesmen in terms of reliability.

This short answer / identification worksheet helps students understand why. Drawing its questions from various terms, issues and controversies involving the legislative branch. Why are there no Congressional term limits? Why are members of Congress regularly reelected if they are so unpopular? What does the Speaker of the House do?

Perfect as a single-day class activity, homework assignment or for starting a discussion about term limits, "lame duck" politicians and the importance of congressional ethics rules.
